Dominic Thiem has added the experienced Galo Blanco to his coaching team.
Blanco previously coached a young Milos Raonic and then, Karen Khachanov. He’s considered a go-to coach for young players transitioning to the pro tour.
Thiem is long past that stage. But he’ll get a fresh perspective to add to that of his current coach, Günter Bresnik.
The Austrian said in Abu Dhabi that Blanco will be at every tournament through April. At the big ones – the Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami – he’ll have both.
Blanco also was with Thiem during the offseason in Tenerife.
